A touch of 'Vintage'........

Good morning, it's Sunday, so here I am again with another DT creation for a brand new challenge over at OSAAT. First off, I have to say 'Happy 1st Birthday' OSAAT! Yep today we are celebrating our Big Birthday Bash, which basically means more prizes for you this week, from a whole array of sponsors, so you won't want to miss entering.

Our theme for this weeks challenge is to celebrate with 'Girlie Things' know the ones........ribbon, flowers, bling, pins......all the stuff we love to play with.

So, I have two projects to show you today, the second will be following in the next post. First up, a touch of vintage using an image from one of our sponsors.......Dezina World, together with some lovely papers from Floppy Latte Designs......'Vintage Vision' (which you can find at the Stitchy Bear store).............

Well, I've never actually created a grunged up, vintage style before, so I'm fairly pleased with how it's turned out. I guess a $1.25 box from the $$ store can be a good investment.

The deets are pretty obvious with this one.......I covered with papers, added my image, lace, bling, flowers, Tim Holtz ticket, grunged everything up a little with distress inks and there we are. This has already been claimed by my youngest for her special things........hairbands, an elastic, a half eaten lollipop, a favourite cheerio! I dare not dig any deeper!!

Make sure you hop over to the OSAAT blog this week to catch up on the major creativity presented by the DT and don't forget to enter this weeks challenge.

I'll be back in a little while with some challenge entries, and even sooner with my second creation...........see you in a jiffy.

Stunning work Jayne, just love the whole vintage effect you have created. June's image is gorgeous and I love how you have added the ticket and bling.
Enjoy the rest of Sunday and I hope you have better weather than our wet and soggy Sunday in the south of England.
